With the start of Fall, I have been very sad to see all of the fresh berries I enjoyed all summer slowly disappearing from the local farmer’s markets and grocery stores. Fresh strawberries, blueberries and raspberries have been a morning requirement for me all summer long. They will be greatly missed.
In place of my favorite berries, it has made me happy to see Oranges and Apples to start making their presence known in the market place. As one fruit departs, another genre is greatly welcomed.
I purchased my first Orange of the season over the weekend and enjoyed it this morning with a little almond butter for dipping.
My parent’s have an orange tree in their backyard that has been blossoming beautifully all summer. I can’t wait to have fresh oranges straight from their backyard!
This snack rocked, as did my lunch.
I had originally planned to enjoy my left over Lentil Sloppy Joes as a stuffing for my Acorn Squash, but that idea went out the water when my Acorn Squash became the star ingredient for my chili last night.
My Plan B was a strike of delicious brilliance: Lentil Sloppy Joes & Homemade Corn Bread!
Holy Yum! These flavors worked perfectly. I served the combination open face and savored every bite.
On the side I had grilled Okra Fries with Ketchup.
I didn’t have time to bake the Okra Fries, so 5 minutes on the George Foreman was a wonderful alternative.
I know this idea is nothing new, but its something I just discovered today.
Marathonguide.com is a site where you can search for anyone’s completed marathon time. I have been plugging in random people’s name all day to figure out what their official marathon times are. It’s an addicting site and a fun time waster. Check it out for your self.
